Baruch "Ben" MINTZ
By Rena ZAYIT, Monday, October 31, 2005, Page A14
Father, husband, salesman, small business owner. Born February 24, 1915, in Toronto. Died May 13 of pneumonia after hip surgery, aged 90.
My father was a very dignified man. He epitomized old-fashioned characteristics of honesty, integrity and decency. The highest compliment that he could pay anyone was: "He was really a very decent chap."
For him, that said it all. I have been honoured to follow in my father's footsteps, for my father, too, was a very decent chap.
Born Baruch on February 24, 1915, in downtown Toronto, my father grew up the son of a clothing jobber in a large family. He left home at a young age and travelled across North America before ending up in Montreal. There, he met my mother, Marge TORONTOUR, and became the father of Raanan, my twin brother Arne and me.
My father believed in working hard. "Thorough" was his favourite word. Well before I learned that sinning was missing the mark, I learned from my father that not making the most thorough attempt was not working hard enough, and that was inexcusable.
Primarily, I remember my father working as a travelling salesman, carting heavy cases of samples in and out of his car. I never remembered my father complaining about his hard work. For him, the definition of being a decent chap was that you worked hard, looked after your family and did not impose on others.
I wished my father had been willing to impose on others and let us help him. Right until his 90th birthday, he was ruggedly independent and would not impose on anyone to ask for help. Nor would my father permit himself much. When we bought him new clothes, they would stay in his closet for years, still pristinely wrapped. My father, in his modesty, turned away compliments.
As a young man, he was a splendid artist, making incredible lifelike drawings using the most humble materials: a simple pencil and plain paper.
My father's great delight was his grandchildren. About the only time I ever saw him beam with pleasure was when he mentioned, or when anyone talked about, his grandchildren -- Tziona, Anne, Yonan and Corey -- and his precious great-grandchildren -- Ryan and Talya.
One of my favourite memories of my father is his reading bedtime stories to my twin brother and me. We would each sit on one side of him and we loved listening to him read The Fat Baron. He carefully articulated each word and took great pleasure in pausing dramatically.
There was another pleasure my father had: writing short stories. During a five-year period starting in 1995, he wrote and rewrote numerous stories. In many cases, there are three or four drafts of the outline plus hand-written drafts of the story, all written on the backs of flyers or carefully opened letters. Each draft is carefully edited with his red pen with suggestions for changes. In some cases, he carefully glued new words over the old.
His stories say so much about him. They are gentle and peopled with hard-working characters, whom my father describes as having the highest moral values. In one story, two Friends in their boat narrowly miss the dangers of the rapids and capsizing. As they bicycle away, leaving the boat and the water, one friend tells the other: "I got to hand it to you. You took everything in your stride. Not a word of complaint. While I fussed and complained you kept your cool during the worst of it."
The other friend looks at him in silence for a while.
"I was praying," he says simply.
Baruch means blessed in Hebrew. My father will be missed.
Rena is Ben's daughter.

LUDWIG, Charles " Chuck"
Passed away suddenly on Friday, November 18, 2005, one month and one day before his 93rd birthday. He was a source of strength for his family and a reliable friend to those who knew him.
He was born in Winnipeg to Sarah and Lazer Hirsch LUDWIG, the first Canadian-born child in a family of six children. His education was interrupted by the Depression. After helping his family survive through the roughest years, Chuck went to New York to be trained as a furrier. He returned to take a position at Perth's Furriers, where he worked for over 40 years. He enjoyed doing business and engaging customers in breezy conversation. He kept thousands of people in Winnipeg warm and comfortable in the latest styles.
But it was his twinkling blue eyes, broad smile, and warmth of personality for which he will be most widely remembered. He was genuinely interested in people. More importantly, family and Friends could always count on him for help with any problem.
Chuck married Toby (Toots) LUDWIG in 1937. They had 68 affectionate years together, raised two daughters and enjoyed an active social life. In recent years, Chuck lovingly took care of Toots as her health declined.
Chuck was an enthusiastic volunteer in political campaigns and community affairs. He was an avid fisherman and taught his nephews to enjoy the sport. He was the skip on the curling team with his three brothers-in-law and was president of the Maple Leaf Curling Club. He was a regular member at the Zaida's table at the Asper Jewish Community Centre, eagerly greeting passersby, including the young children who quickly learned he always had candy in his pockets.
He is survived by his wife Toots, daughters Sandy HURWITZ (Syd PALANSKY) and Alicia MATAS (Robert,) grandchildren Paula (Jeff,) Hayley-Ann (Anthony), Jared (Cheryl) and Max (Danya), great-granddaughters Rebecca and Lauren, sisters-in-law Lola, Alice and Betty and many nieces and nephews.
Funeral was held November 20. Pallbearers -- Syd PALANSKY, Robert, Jared and Max MATAS, Jeff TROSSMAN, and Dane HERSHBERG. Honorary Pallbearers -- Izzy MINUK and Bill BROWNSTONE. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Toots and Chuck LUDWIG Fund at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, Suite C400 - 123 Doncaster Street, Winnipeg, R3N 2B2, 204.477.7525 (www.jewishfoundation.org).
